Had one in the Rubicon, perfect for wallet and sidearm.

I was thinking wrenches and an ignition box... ;)
I never wanted a red car.. always thought they were tacky and common...
I now have 4 very not common cars and they are all red.. :o

little update on the ignition box gremlin issue...

make a very long story short..
The ignition module ground (black wire in harness) grounds through the distributor.
The distributor is in fact grounded via the distributor hold down clamp...
I created a secondary ground from the vacuum advance screw to the engine block. 
4 tanks of fuel later and no issue...

note to self:  don't powder coat distributor hold down clamps...  ::)

thats odd, so since it probably has a cork gasket under it, it was trying to find ground though the drive gears / oil pump?  hmmm

Chrysler ignition box installed last night...

Chrysler ignition, Ford distributor, AMC motor, GM fuel injection system.. ::)

Jeep runs like a raped ape now..
snappier throttle response and easily bolted on 20 HP  ::)

removed the hood to cowl seal and im getting a bit more air draw out of the engine compartment..


time will tell..
